Its valuable because of its high performance, integration with Spring Framework, easy installation, and configuration

What is most valuable?

  • High performance
  • Integration with Spring Framework
  • Easy installation and configuration

How has it helped my organization?

We have been using GemFire for a Telco project, which we need process network data in real time and meanwhile access some reference data. GemFire has done a great job, as we have managed to process over 200,000 messages per second.

What needs improvement?

In build monitoring, the interface could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

18 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

With version 8.1, we had some issues while we were querying data from memory, but it has been fixed in version 8.2, and after that we have never had problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, even when we had serious network problems, GemFire managed to recover.

How is customer service and technical support?

A nine out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No, GemFire was always good enough for us.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was easy. In older versions, the user interface was not helpful, but it's improved lately.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As a developer, I was never a part of this pricing decision. That's why I have no advice.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, because we've started to use GemFire as part of a real-time intelligence platform.

What other advice do I have?

Trust GemFire and use the benefits of their strong documentation.
